On Monday evening, the City Council will consider a response to the recently released Grand Jury report, Yellow School Bus for Traffic Congestion Relief. In their report, the Grand Jury examined yellow school bus (YSB) programs in Marin County and found that these programs were developed in a varied district-by-district approach that lacks coordination and consistent funding that could maximize efficiency. The Grand Jury recommends that various government agencies, including cities, develop a cost-efficient, coordinated YSB program serving more K-8 schools, with Marin Transit managing the program. This item outlines the City’s official response to the Grand Jury report, indicating the City’s position on various recommendations posed by the Grand Jury.
